We founded Clean the World with the goal of saving lives in developing countries where millions of people die from illnesses that can be prevented with hand washing. But while distributing more than 12 million soap bars in 67 countries since 2009, we also saw a huge need for soap and hygiene products right here at home. That led us to develop the ONE Project, which provides a way for companies and organizations to make a difference through the distribution of hygiene kits in their own communities.
The slogan for the ONE Project is: “One Kit for One Individual Can Change One Life.”
Thousands of hygiene kits already have been distributed to shelters and outreach organizations throughout the United States. In the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, we sent more than 10,000 kits to residents of New York and New Jersey who were desperately in need of basic hygiene supplies. Now you can get involved.
Your group can host a hygiene kit building event, or purchase pre-assembled kits ready for distribution. The kits can be distributed to shelters, missions, disaster relief efforts, or a number of other places within your very own community.
All types of groups are getting involved, including companies, churches, schools, clubs and fraternal organizations. A special bond forms when individuals work together for a common goal, and the benefits often reach beyond the initial event. Building and distributing hygiene kits is a great way to foster teamwork and a renewed focus on community. By personally distributing the kits locally, you experience first-hand how something so simple can have such a profound impact on someone’s life.
Your ONE Project program includes everything required to build hygiene kits: soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, toothbrush, toothpaste, washcloth, an inspirational note card, and a bag. We also provide a DVD with instructions on how to build the kits, and a leader’s guide with helpful hints and tips.
Unassembled hygiene kits may be ordered for $2.50 per kit with a minimum order of 100. Shipping is included.
